Tales of Atonement: To Make a Hero: M. A. Moreland.

Posted by 2018  •  article

During the time of the Cold War , a proxy conflict between the Sith Empire and Galactic Republic , a number of surviving Taung fought the religious order of the Knell of Muspilli in a nameless moon . Eventually, someone was sent to study the battle's wreckage that had been left behind. [17]

The Taungs' most lasting contribution to the history of the galaxy was the Mandalorian culture itself, which outlived its founders by more than four thousand years. [21] Though anthropologists would later be divided over whether it was indeed the Taung who were the first Mandalorians, [2] quarreling over the similarities between the Mandalorian language and the remaining Taung texts [3] the Mandalorians followed in the example of the Taung [1] as nomadic warriors for much of their history, though they became a much more diversified group of beings from countless species and walks of life, all united by the common culture. [2]

Far from the warrior culture of the Mandalorians, the sisterhood of priestly Taung that elected to flee ancient Coruscant for the Unknown Regions after their defeat at the hands of the Zhell, had a profound impact on the foundation of a different group altogether: the Sorcerers of Rhand . These female Taung, who believed in seeking atonement through meditation and introspection, joined the Knell of Muspilli death cult, and the fanatical Kanzer Exiles to inspire the teachings of the Sorcerers of Rhand , when over thousands of years, the three unique philosophies and belief systems merged. [11]

The row over literary plagiarism comes round as regularly as the Saturday night lottery draw or Jordan's breast enhancements. This month's innocent victim, or - depending on your point of view - devious expropriator is the Booker-winning novelist Ian McEwan, whose best-selling work Atonement (2002) is alleged to have borrowed considerably from the war-time diaries of the late Lucilla Andrews.

In his defence, McEwan has pointed out that Ms Andrews' book, No Time For Romance, is acknowledged in his foreword and that he never loses an opportunity, on speaking engagements, of drawing attention to its merits. If this is plagiarism, then it seems a rather self-conscious way of going about an art generally practised with subterfuge.

Clearly, though McEwan was piqued by this allegation of bad faith. Now, all of a sudden, the focus of l'affaire Andrews has spread a little wider with the announcement that several world-famous writers, primed by Dan Franklin, McEwan's editor at Random House, have joined together to support not only McEwan but the literary techniques of which Atonement makes use. By their own admission, such luminaries of the trade as Thomas Pynchon and Margaret Atwood routinely pillage documentary sources for the background material to their fiction - the get-out clause being that, like McEwan, they are careful to name names and supply acknowledgments.

A walk of atonement is a public ritual of punishment and penance in the Faith of the Seven . It demands a confessed sinner to walk a certain distance stripped of all clothing, exposed to the eyes and jeers of the population.

After being caught at a brothel in the middle of a session of blasphemous sexual roleplay, the High Septon is trapped by a group of Sparrows , stripped of all his clothes and forced to walk naked through the streets of King's Landing , while one of the Sparrows publicly names him a sinner and beats his hands to keep him from covering his genitalia. [1]

When Jaime Lannister is formally removed from the Kingsguard for threatening the Faith, he sarcastically asks if he will be forced to make a walk of atonement. [4]

Though here we find no technical flaws, the plot raises a few ambiguities in the minds of the audience, which seems to be never answered in the movie. We ask, ‘How can a man who struggles his way out to write a letter of his life could replace it accidentally?’ Secondly we don’t know why the young Briony puts Robbie to task. Is it because of her opinion on him? or is she jealous of her sister loving a man on whom she is having a crush? or does the second cause serve the first one? We are unsure. Does the writer want his audience to enjoy the warmth of the ambiguity created? May be, once again we are ignorant. Apart from ambiguities, the plot is see-through.

A romantic movie that will touch anyone’s heart…I love the story very touching…Keira is so gorgeous she can capture everyone’s heart…

Atonement looked and felt a lot like Pride and Prejudice, impeccable setting, acting and dialogue. i wonder if Briony’s vocabulary is realistic for an British young person? it wouldnt surprise me… A bit depressing toward the end, but over all very well done.
